I actually found this recipe on a baking blog that I frequently read, www.mybakingaddiction.com, but I thought I'd see if it was here, and here it is! I used 10 regular-sized Reese's cups. This recipe is missing the glaze. For mine, I changed it up a bit (what was on mybakingaddiction), and I combined 3 Tablespoons peanut butter, 1/4 cup confectioner's sugar, 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract, and 1/2 cup heavy cream, and I whipped it until it was at about soft peaks, and spread it on top, letting some "drip" down the side. Instead of just meting chocolate chips, I made half a recipe of ganache (#97213), and piped it on the top just using a ziploc baggie. This turned out to be a very nice looking torte, perfect for the company we had, and VERY rich. It's like brownie batter, and cooks up like brownies too. I froze the leftovers we had, in slices, so we can take a slice out at a time. Thanks for posting this!
